Dishonored invites us to a killer partyI'm no stranger to behaving badly at parties. Over the years I've had my fair share of inhaling tequila shots and sliding down staircases on my face. On one occasion I provided my intoxicated chum with a plateful of cat biscuits, which he then happily scarfed - even after I revealed what they were. But even I tend to draw the line at murdering the host.The latest demo for Dishonored - and our very first hands-on with the game - finds you infiltrating a flashy shindig at the home of Lady Boyle, the next entry on your homicidal hitlist. It's time for you to lance the Boyle, but there's a catch: there are three women here who use the handle "Lady Boyle", and you're not clear which is the one who needs to die. It could be the matriarch of the family, or either of her two daughters. And as Facebook appears to be down, your only option is to snoop about and do some detective work.(For the record I was half-hoping that SuBo would turn out to be our target, but sadly this isn't the case.)Right from the start of the demo, it's clear that we're playing a game with whopping ambitions.
Dishonored: razor wire, teleportation, and psychically-possessed fishMorgan and Custis Pendleton must die. It's not immediately clear why, at this moment in time. Maybe it's just the anti One Per cent vibe I'm carrying around in my veins these days, but they look like bad people. Besides, they're hanging around in an oversized bathhouse, and we all know the punters there pay for sex – a crime which, in gaming terms, offers immediate justification for bloody slaughter. As it does in the real world.So yes, Morgan and Custis Pendleton must die. The only question is this: is it to be the Quiet Way, or the Not So Quiet Way.Well, what's it to be?The Quiet WayWe're dropped off by boat, having travelled down the river that runs through the city of Dunwall – a plague-ridden, mutated blend of Victorian London, 18th Century whaling towns, and various steampunk oddities.We make our way through the streets that lead to The Golden Cat bathhouse – a tall, imposing building with circular architecture. If we loitered in the preceding alleys we'd apparently find a few side quests, but there's no time for that today: the clock is ticking, and there's killing to be done. Gazing around, you can spot houses covered with canvas marked with a sinister red "X".
Dishonored: Stealth, rats, plague and beheadingsThree names and three reasons why you should be interested in Dishonored: Raf Colantonio, Harvey Smith and Viktor Antonov.Colantonio is known for his work on Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, Smith is famed for his contributions to Thief: Deadly Shadows and the Deus Ex series, and Antonov is the chap that designed Half Life 2's City 17. So while Dishonored might be a new IP with a stupidly spelt name (where's the 'u' dammit!?), it's got a pedigree that will likely prick up a few ears.You play a fellow that goes by the name of Corvo. He was the bodyguard to an Empress, but then she went and got herself murdered. The powers that be think it was him that gone and done it. After doing his time, he's released back into the big wide world, and there's one thing on his mind: finding the bastard that set him up. While Corvo is a silent protagonist, it's fair to say that all that time in the slammer has changed him somewhat. Once a respectable bodyguard, Corvo is now an employee of the shadows; an assassin.
